 Marcus Stroman allowed one run on six hits, one walk, and eight strikeouts in six and one-third innings.

Sun, Jun 13th
After being activated from the 10-day injured list just hours earlier, Rangers closer Ian Kennedy was called on to pitch the ninth inning against the Astros. Houston was leading by a score of 7-4, so the decision to use Kennedy was likely just to get him some live game work following his injury. Ultimately, the 36-year-old allowed one run on two hits, including a solo homer. He also struck out once Houston batter.

Notes 
 Stroman missed the entire 2020 season after battling a calf injury and then opting out, but he'll return to the Mets after accepting the team's qualifying offer. Stroman's strikeout rate jumped after his trade to the National League, but with a career 58.7% ground ball rate, he'll need the Mets' infield defense to be better than it was in 2019. The trade for Francisco Lindor should help, as should his reported development of both a new split changeup and four-seam fastball. Stroman has always had a decent floor, but now out of the AL East and with some tweaks to his arsenal coming, he possesses plenty of upside as a late-round draft pick.
